Daniel Clowes & Chris Ware

Posted: March 26, 2010

Heads up! Hope you can make it one or both of these exceptional Comica events featuring Daniel Clowes and Chris Ware.

First up they’re in conversation with Audrey Niffenegger, a graphic novelist as well as author of The Time-Traveller’s Wife, at the Cochrane Theatre, London on Monday May 24th, in association with Foyles. More details…

Then they are chatting with me in Brighton at the Corn Exchange on Tuesday May 25th, in association with The Brighton Festival & Dome. More details…

Clowes was one of the most requested Comica guests and finally we’ve got him over to launch his first all-original graphic novel Wilson, with Ware as the icing and Niffenegger as the cherries on the cake! Be sure to book your tickets soon.

Both these Comica Events have been made possible by the kind co-operation, first and foremost, of the Copenhagen Comics Festival (where Clowes and Ware are appearing prior to their UK jaunt), and with the generous support of Foyles Bookshop, The Brighton Festival & Dome, Jonathan Cape, Gosh! Comics (who are hosting a signing on Tuesday May 25 between 12 and 2pm) and Offset 2010 in Dublin.
